TOP 10 SMT players in India (March 2009)


Surface mount technology (SMT) has started creating waves in the country, which has been made conspicuous by the kind of amplification SMT play­ers are experiencing in the Indian market. For the second time since our inception, we are conducting this study (last year, we carried it in the February 2008 issue) and are pleased that we have received a robust response this year as well. This is the second anniversary issue of Electronics Bazaar and we would like to extend our gratitude to all our readers for be­ing appreciative of the ‘EB Top’ banner.
